YouTube is expanding its Creators for Change program, a global initiative first announced in December 2016, to amplify (and multiply) the voices of YouTube creators who speak up for change.

The Creators for Change program enables these creators to use YouTube’s global reach to change conversations around tough issues and make a truly positive impact on the world. Announcing the next fleet of inspiring creators, for the YouTube Creators for Change 2018 class, YouTube today revealed 48 global ambassadors, who will tackle hate and promote tolerance, with videos and stories of hope, connection, and understanding.

Chosen for their passion and dedication to create social change, these YouTube creators come from over 16 countries and represent a combined reach of 29 million fans. Joining last year’s India ambassador — Niharika Nm* and AIB*, will be Prajakta Kohli from MostlySane whose video on body shaming called ‘Shameless’ went viral in the country and amassed 3 Million+ views last year and team Girliyapa who have been breaking stereotypes through their short comic videos.

Juniper Downs, Head of YouTube Public Policy said “We are humbled to be working with the Creators for Change ambassadors, who will spread the message of hope and tolerance across the world, with their work. As part of YouTube’s commitment to invest $5M in this program, these creators will receive support from YouTube through a combination of project funding, mentorship opportunities, and ongoing production assistance at our YouTube Spaces. Over the next few months, the 2018 Creators for Change Ambassadors will kick off projects addressing hate speech, xenophobia and/or extremism through different creative forms, such as a video project that creates awareness about the negative impact that hate speech can have on mental and physical well-being.”

As part of the Creators for Change program, all global ambassadors will come together for the second annual Social Impact Camp at YouTube Space London where they will get mentorship opportunities with experts to bring their incredible ideas to life.
